This is a pretty nice video comparison… the Samsung Omnia II OLED screen versus the Nokia N900 LCD screen. Now, OLED/AMOLED has become a somewhat popular topic of late, because it appears to give a very vivid yet balanced image, when compared with some of the slightly older screen technologies. But that’s no good of course, if you can’t see anything in sunlight!
Well we need not have worried – in this test, the Samsung Omnia II (packing an OLED screen) comes out much better than the N900 in terms of reproducing the same music video (a slice of Europop) side by side.
Now there has been criticism of what I guess you could call the first generation of OLED screens in mobile devices, in that you couldn’t see them in strong sunlight at all – but advances have clearly been made, and without knowing ins and outs of the tests (which of course is the all important caveat here), it does at least seem that Samsung have conquered the problem!
